I found Zevia in my local grocery store!

For all of you in the Saint Louis area, I saw Zevia in the Organic/Health food aisle in a Dierbergs Market. They had several flavors. As soon as payday rolls around I'm going to pick some up!

Oh wow, I've never heard of this! DH LOVES coke zero, but I stopped buying it because of the AS. I've never really been a pop drinker, but this looks promising for him! They actually have a store locator on their site searchable by zip code.

My healthfood store just got this locally. I had previously bought it when 'out of town'.

It's pretty good...but I still have to be careful to not overdo it. I worry that I will eventually become 'sensitive' to the erythritol like I have all the other artificial sweeteners (I get terrible migraines when I use sucralose, asparame, etc.)

Is this similar to Truvia? It is a combination of stevia and erythritol. I just saw this one at the grocery store for the first time yesterday.

As with the X-Files' latest film, 'I want to believe' was my mantra when I was told about a product called Zevia; still, after a 24 year Diet Coke addiction, I had finally sworn off all artificial sweeteners and wasn't about to replace one addiction with another.

Then along came the natural sweetener in an herb called stevia.

Stevia, while indigenous to subtropic regions, is a plant which can be grown locally in many gardening zones across the United States. While not currently allowed as a sweetener in the United States, Cargill and Coca Cola are working to patent Truvia, a stevia derived sweetener.

Granted, when it comes to soda and chemicals, I have my concerns: any chemical versions of stevia, especially at the hands of a soda company--can that be healthy? I mean come on.

Ian Eisenberg of Zevia came to me and immediately (and with full disclosure) addressed my concerns in-depth. Better yet, I not only tried the soda as a result of his enthusiasm and knowledge about the ingredients in not only his beverage but others, I brought a case of Zevia with me on an RV trip to the Pacific Northwest. Being able to test the product in a real-world situation with four kids and travel shored up the obvious for me: Zevia is a hit.

For the folks out there (like me), who are concerned about what is going into their bodies, a breakdown of all ingredients is openly disclosed, along with their role in the beverage. No polysyllabic latinates will cross your sweet lips without explanation (example: erythritol), and all ingredients are considered carefully prior to implentation.

Zevia comes in 4 flavors: Natural Ginger Root Beer, Natural Twist, Natural Cola and Natural Orange.

We popped open cans of the Zevia on the 2,000 mile, three-day jaunt across the western half of the country. For my oldest son, the Natural Orange was his favorite flavor. Its zesty, independent citrus notes left a fresh aftertaste, and was enjoyed throroughly. For my pre-teen daughter, Natural Twist, the 7-Upesque lemon-lime drink was refreshing, cool perfection, perfect for the travel through sultry Utah landscapes. Its flavors lifted tastebuds to play from dormancy, and, again, the aftertaste was very light and zippy. My younger boy went immediately for the Natural Ginger Root Beer. A pretty hard-core root beer afficionado, he loved its easy, soothing taste, citing that the addition of ginger made for a wonderful combination of two standards: root beer and ginger ale. For the adults in the family, the Natural Cola was the favorite, having a very light taste coupled with the standard amount of caffeine (45 mg) to keep us alert while we traversed road construction through Idaho (in the dark. With me driving. I have no night vision. Think Mr. Magoo with arm flaps.)

Erithrytol caused no indigestion problems whatsoever (Mr. Eisenberg told me that the guilt by association that erithrytol is without merit. This sugar alcohol is actually quite easy on the colon), and there were no resultant cravings which sometimes come about as a result of the use of other sugar alcohols.

Pet Peeve? The product is difficult to find in stores. Since Zevia is a small, grass roots company, it takes more effort to see their product make it to stores. That's where consumers come in. By checking here for local stores carrying the product, or request a store carry Zevia, people looking for a real, all-natural cola will be taking an active step in making voices heard. Zevia can also be ordered online and by phone.

Additionally, for a limited time, Zevia is offering free samples to consumers. Shipping and handling is a little bit pricey, but so are gas costs these days, and UPS drivers have to make a living, too.

Scully and Mulder may still be looking for the truth, but I've found truthfully what I enjoy in a diet beverage: whole, healthy ingredients, a light, zesty flavor, and a fresh aftertaste. These aren't chemicals concocted in a factory. Think of Zevia as the new microbrew of healthy low-glycemic beverages.

That was my next question, how does it taste? If your kids liked it, I think I'll need to give this a try.

I was wondering which flavor to try first! Thank you for your review! The Natural Ginger Root Beer has me intrigued..... Plus I could add hwc to it for a lc "float"! yay! I can't wait for payday.... (it's like 6 bucks for a 6 pack, a lot for my budget, but I'm gonna squeeze it in )

Hi... Newbie to this forum. Does anyone know if there are any coupons out there for Zevia? I hear health food store called Lassens out here in So. CA has it and Bristol Farms. I have to watch for diabetes and artificial sweeteners give me migraines. I have so wanted some soda!

I bought the ginger root beer, cola, and lemon/lime. My favorite is the root beer, then the lemon lime, cola coming in last. The cola has a funky taste to me, it tastes like diet coke kind of without the artificial sweetener after taste. I like these for a treat, I wouldn't drink them every day because they are so expensive. I've never been a big pop drinker though. I bought them for DH but he's not really crazy about them.

$6.00 for a six pack here and I found them gross. My youngest daughter and I love Diet Sunkist and were hoping to replace it with the Orange Zevia. Both of us just shuddered when we drank it the first time. We tried another can another day to see if we could get used to it- nope. Tasted gross to us. My oldest daughter and son both love Sprite and Lemon and Lime drinks so we got the lemon lime kind for them and tried that. Oldest daughter and son said it was ok and my youngest and I thought again that it was nasty.

If I get a hankering for soda again I'll just have the Diet Sunkist or Diet Coke and call it a day. Cheaper and tastes better though I am cutting it out of my daily diet unless we go out to eat or have a special occasion as Splenda and Nutrasweet cause me many problems when I've drank those sodas on a daily basis.

Funny how we all perceive things differently, cuz I LOVE the orange flavored one! When they first came out with the Zevia, they had a ginger root beer that was awesome. I think they discontinued that one, darn it.

The only place I've seen it so far is at Whole Foods and it's nearly $6/six pack, but that's OK, I've learned to severely curtail my soda habit anyway so an occasional can of orange soda for a buck isn't gonna kill me.

I tried zevia a couple of years ago when it first came out and I wasn't a fan. The twist flavor was tolerable but the cola left much to be desired. I just saw on netrition that there is a black cherry flavor now, I will have to try that.

And if you look at the Zevia website, they have one called "Dr. Zevia" which I would have to guess is a Dr. Pepper knock-off - might have to try that one too!
